Head of Marketing (Chief Executive)

Reference ID 5754

  • Drive new strategic direction and operating model.
  • Create a values-based insurance marketing organisation.

HealthCarePlus is a not-for-profit organisation with a proud history of providing Union Members in the education and public sectors with access to health insurance products and services. It is a cooperative organisation, with any profit applied for the benefit of its members. During 2018 the departing Chief Executive in conjunction with the Board undertook a fundamental review of the business model which now sees it operating as an insurance marketing and funds distribution business.

The Board now seeks a different skill set to drive the business forward. You will be responsible for marketing an extended range of insurance products and services that add real value to subscribers. You will also be managing a significant investment fund, the returns of which are distributed by way of charitable education grants. In this position you will be provided with the opportunity, of assembling a very small hand-picked team of marketing and business professionals to create a unique culture and values-based organisation. In addition to bedding down the new operating model you will be charged with strategizing and operationalising new business lines to enhance customer value and generate new revenue streams.

This will require someone with exceptional stakeholder management skills to engage with key strategic partners. You will be a digital and social media gun able to maximise online opportunities. You are likely to have had some exposure to working with financial advisers and will have worked in, or be familiar with, the insurance sector. Whilst you will be the boss and report directly to the Board, this is a hands-on position where your daily chores and responsibilities will go way beyond those outlined in your position description. You will have management experience, either as a general manager or in a senior leadership team and may have even run your own business. You will bring energy and personality to navigate the business through an exciting phase in its evolution.
